The New York Mets and Miami Marlins square off for a rubber game Wednesday night.
The New York Mets look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Mets have allowed five runs in this series and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The Mets have won 10 straight games when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Juan Lagares leads New York with 26 hits and 11 RBI while Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda have combined for 25 RBI. All six of the New York Mets losses this season have come on the road. Bartolo Colon takes the hill, and he’s 4-0 with a 2.77 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season.

The Miami Marlins look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Marlins have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Marlins have won five straight games when topping three runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 36 hits and 10 RBI while Adeiny Hechavarria and Giancarlo Stanton have combined for 34 RBI. The Miami Marlins have won four of their last five home games. Mat Latos gets the ball, and he’s 0-3 with a 7.31 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. Latos is 2-4 with a 2.63 ERA and 53 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 5-0 in Colons last 5 starts. The Marlins are 5-1 in their last 6 vs. National League East and 5-13 in their last 18 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Mets are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Miami and 13-3 in the last 16 meetings overall.
The value in this spot is with the Mets and the plus money. Latos has looked awful in a Miami uniform and Colon has been one of the top pitchers in the game this season. I'll gladly take plus money in this spot.
